Thank you for the feed back I rarely get anything other than a thumbs up or thumbs down with no explanation as to why.
Freeflight's Schools private channel RTV, I can talk more openly with clients, but even here it is difficult to find what works best with people.
In regards to videos I never do a rehearsal, it is always and has been in one take recording.
Bigger pen is a good idea, here I just see it from an tablets view, IE close up or lean forwards
So I take that on board draw bigger, the editing in the video live so nothing edited out.
Great question mark "3D vision (stereo depth perception"
On the hills I say look at that thermal students.
My students often look at me, ask are you making it all up that thermal where ?
Post Pilot pro students say Rob can see the air in a different way to others.
I told a recent students I wear these special glasses and he can buy a pair only 500 quid.
He said where can I buy.
I replied no I was only joking, I see what maybe student what you have yet to learn. (bird sits on a lamp post into wind, now you know the wind direction, use watch hands for marking out south, your neck of the woods Mark is opposite.)
I do have extra cone rods, so colours to my eye's are different to other peoples eyes.
apparently I also see 165 images per every 3 seconds in a test I did years ago.
I can mental map images and colours very quickly I known that for a while, just thought everyone else did the same.
Air like water it moves dances, you just have to see what is in front of you.
The land has shapes and I often take students on foot to corn fields and ask them to wait.
I then point out the corn starts to move and they actually can see a thermal movement in progress.
Sometimes you might mistaken the movement of the corn for a wild animal.
The curves of land are just a key illustration to the observer.
Once you have a reference to work with you go much deeper angles of shade.
April for an example `NW slope in shade until 10.37 hrs then sun will do its work and convection takes place on the horse frost.
So contours you're not see at say 4 G above take off, shades and different colours of spectrum you can see if you know what you're looking for.
Kind of a black art in a way, I have just studied the air and sea all my life.
Give me a road map I am lost, ask me the way by images I can tell you the route in fine details.
Not sure if I have answered your questions Mark ?
The intros are fun I make all these in LF in spare moments.
You are right though need to keep them short snappy like an advert on TV all done in 30 seconds.
The private videos not public, I generally have hello rob, no intro's.
Advertising a difficult arena to be in, at heart I am just a teacher not business man.
Love my job love my clients.
One student now in Switzerland flying from mountain to mountain see how far he can travel in 7 days. No car involved feet and a glider.
I should be there really, but that thing virus giving us all grieve now days.
He might be there for a little while longer
